Clientless SSL VPN errors. I have two groups that I get from the main login(AnyConnectVPN & ClientLessVPN). AnyConnect works fine and start the Anyconnect Client. But when I chose the ClientLessVPN group  and login to access the web, I get this error (Clientless (browser) SSL VPN access is not allowed.).What am I missing, here is the config.

  • Cisco Employee,

You are running and having AnyConnect Essential license on your ASA which does not support Clientless SSL VPN.

There are 2 types of SSL VPN license:

1) AnyConnect Essential license - only supports AnyConnect client connections

2) AnyConnect Premium license (user base license) - supports all flavours of SSL VPN, including: clientless SSL VPN, AnyConnect client VPN, and all the advanced features of SSL VPN.

Hope that answers your question.

  • Cisco Employee,

You can't have both AnyConnect Essential license and AnyConnect Premium license enabled at the same ASA. It is one or the other.

Since you have both enabled at the moment, if you would like to use the Clientless SSL VPN, you can disable the AnyConnect Essestial license, and make use of the 10 AnyConnect Premium license. But please kindly be advised that you will only have maximum of 10 concurrent SSL VPN connections.

Here is the command to disable AnyConnect Essential:


  no anyconnect-essentials

Here is the command reference:


Hope that answers your question.
